This Irish Chain quilt belongs to the guild and will be raffled at the Christmas Craft Show in November. I love quilting Irish Chain quilts as they look great with a mix of stencil work and free hand. I used a stencil for the feathered wreath and the just free hand quilted the continuous curves in the dark chain fabrics. I did the feather feather swirl design in the light inner border and then did what I call a free hand 'rosebud' design in the outer border. I think it will look beautiful at the craft sale as it has a christmas feel with the green and red print fabric but it isn't christmas fabrics. The sun wasn't cooperating today so it was tricky getting a good shot of the quilting.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and look forward to opening my business again soon.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I have recently become addicted to dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
